I love teaching students about animals, and farm animals, for me, are part of the basics.
I have separated my farm animal unit into sections:
Introducing Farm Animals:
Develop familiarity with common farm animals and their sounds. Use the flashcards, play the board game, and make an Old MacDonald, student book.
Learn baby farm animal names. Match adult animals to their babies; read and complete worksheets; dramatize “Where is My Mother?” and create a class book based on the story by E.P. Eastman.
Use various animal features to sort, describe and differentiate between farm animals. With simple graphing and “fill in the blank” worksheets as well as animal feature games, kids vocabulary will grow.
A Few Fun Facts:
Learn a variety of simple facts about different farm animals. Simple information cards teach the names for the male, the female, a baby and a group. Animal noises and diet are also covered. Make a simple report by completing the forms provided. Use the information on the cards to help.
